11 Places In Arizona Way Out In The Boonies But So Worth The Drive
Sometimes taking a break from the modern life into remote areas is a well-deserved treat, whether it’s for a couple of hours or a couple of weeks. It’s a chance to take a break from technology, reconnect with nature, and reset your biological clock, all of which can lead to much healthier life. You could probably drive about 50 miles in any direction from where you are right now and find yourself in the boonies, but you never really know if you’re standing on private land or not. Instead, here are a few suggestions for places that offer beautiful views, natural silence, and isolation from the rest of the world.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
